In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Hybrid Design and Implementation Report for the Philippines’ fourth action plan. The report provides an overview of the co-creation process, design qualities, and implementation of the Philippines‘ 2017-2019 action plan.
The IRM’s findings are summarized below:
The Philippines’ fourth action plan modestly increased citizens’ access to information, particularly in regard to the budget process, extractive industries, and local government spending. Despite substantial completion, open government gains were modest. Going forward, the Philippines can achieve stronger reforms by raising commitments’ level of ambition and ensuring legislative support.
The report is available in English. The public is invited to review and comment on this report from 1 September to 16 September 2021.
